Soft Focus


Today I wanted to share a few photographs I took in the garden last weekend. I looove our Rose of Sharon bush (and I’ve shared photos of it before!). But, this time I challenged myself a little more and took some soft focus photos. Dreamy! If you don’t have a soft focus lens for your DSLR, I suggest you purchase one and just enjoy what it can do for your photographs!

The Planner Society July Kit Projects

Hello! Happy Wednesday!

Today I am sharing a couple projects I’ve made with The Planner Society July kit. Both projects are for my personal size planners.

I found this beautiful green planner at Michaels- the Recollections brand. It matches this kit perfectly! I made a set of pretty dividers with a few embellishments on them. I also created a pocket page out of the smaller red pineapple bag that the kit came in. For the final page in my planner, I laminated some green & white Kate Spade tissue paper, and sprinkled sequins on it before I laminated it. This is one of my favorite techniques lately!! Laminating sequins on paper works surprisingly well!

The second setup I made is for my Kate Spade planner that goes in my bag. I used the same sides of the paper facing outward, because I just love them! I added some doilies to these to make them a little different than my other dividers from the previous setup.

Alright, that’s all for now! I’ll be back with more projects soon!

The Planner Society July 2017 Kit

Hello!! Today I want to share the July Planner Society Kit with you! When Christy first started sharing the peeks of this kit, I knew I would love it! The purples, greens, florals, and the girls she created are amazing!

Here’s a look at the full kit. Planner Society July 2017 | JM CreatesThe pen is gorgeous!!Planner Society July 2017 | JM Creates

Planner Society July 2017 | JM CreatesI also looove the little clear bag and the ball bobby pin clips are too cute!Planner Society July 2017 | JM CreatesWhen I saw the colors of the kit, I immediately thought of a green planner. Now, I’ve wanted Webster’s Pages green planner since last year, but I’ve never actually seen it in person. I never ordered it either.  I also knew that Recollections had a green personal planner. And, at my local Michael’s they were on clearance too! I had to make it mine because it matches perfectly!Planner Society July 2017 | JM CreatesBag of goodies…Planner Society July 2017 | JM CreatesNote: The stamps were missing from the kit when I got it, but they were awesome enough to offer to send them to me! Also, you get so much for your money in these kits, it actually took me a couple hours to realize they were missing!The Planner Society July Kit Stamp | JM CreatesI’ve already dived into this kit, and I’ll share some of my creations soon!

Summer Planner Using The Planner Society June Kit

So, I’ve been {impatiently} waiting for my Planner Society July kit to come. What to do while you wait? Create a whole new planner setup using the leftovers from month before!

I saw a couple people on the TPS Facebook group use a blue planner to go with their June kits. This caught my eye! This kit has picnic vibes all over it, and a deep navy blue planner is the blueberry pie on top!  🙂 The planner I used here is a personal size planner by Recollections, found at Michaels.

Here’s what I created…Personal Planner feat. The Planner Society | JM CreatesI laminated the mint doily. I loved the texture of it, but I thought it would get beat up at the front of the planner.June Planner Society Kit | JM CreatesThe blue rosette paperclips seen here- I made ’em! The rosettes can be found at Michaels in a pack of 9. They come in several colors. The blue ones match this planner perfectly, and although I wanted this planner for this kit, the rosettes actually sold me on the whole idea. I attached the rosettes to some beautiful copper paperclips I found at TJ Maxx. June Planner Society Kit | JM CreatesI totally love this setup! It’s fun to even open the planner, which is the whole point- to get me to plan and record my days!June TPS Kit | JM CreatesThank you for stopping by today!


The Planner Society June Kit

Hello! Happy Friday! I’m looking forward to a nice, long weekend full of creating! It’s a struggle, because I have more energy (and sunlight) to play in the summer, but I also want to be outdoors. What do to?  🙂

Today, I wanted to share June’s Planner Society Kit. I decided to subscribe in May because of the Palm Springs\planner girl vibes, but this moth’s kit is just as cute! I think I may have gone down a rabbit hole I won’t be able to get out of anytime soon. And have you seen the July sneak peeks? 😍

So, anyway, here’s a look at the June kit and a few things I have put together with it. It’s so diverse! And, there’s so much product. It’s easy to decorate multiple planners and scrapbook with one single kit.
